PASMA scaffold tower training for working at height

About PASMA training

Mobile access towers are one of the most versatile and safest methods of accessing difficult-to-reach areas of work. However, there remains a risk of death or serious injury caused by falling from heights. That’s why the Working at Height Regulations 2005 mandate that assembling, dismantling and moving mobile scaffold towers must be carried out by a competent person, or a construction worker who is under the supervision of a competent person.

PASMA (Prefabricated Access Suppliers’ and Manufacturers’ Association) is the lead trade association for the mobile access tower industry. It oversees the industry standard training scheme, approved by the HSE and recognised as the premier qualification for the scaffold tower industry. Many organisations will not permit contractors to work on site without written proof of PASMA competency.

PASMA safety courses

As a registered PASMA instructor we have been providing PASMA safety courses since 2006, during which time we have trained over 3,000 delegates. We provide professional technical training that informs users of their responsibilities, shows them how to recognise potential hazards, and instructs them in how to remediate any defects in their work or equipment.

Using written and practical exercises, the full-day course brings delegates right up to date with all the current regulations and legislation, including the Working at Height regulations, the Health and Safety at Work Act, tower inspection, hazards, stabilisation, moving a tower, loading, care and maintenance, and the two new recommended methods for building and dismantling.

All successful delegates receive a PASMA competency certificate and PASMA photo ID card which is valid for five years. We provide training at our Registered Training Centre in Kings Lynn, on site, or at customers’ premises if sufficient facilities are available.
